Escaped jail inmate nabbed in Pend Oreille County
Ryan A. Apling scaled several fences topped with razor wire to escape the Pend Oreille County Jail in February but was arrested without incident today when deputies stopped a car he was a passenger in near Camden Road and Highway 2 just after midnight.
Apling, 29, had been in jail in February for driving with a suspended license and trespassing, both misdemeanors. He is now facing a new charge of second-degree escape.
The driver of the car, 32-year-old Kyle J. Mischenko of Newport, and 30-year-old Adina M. Ahlers of Priest River, were both arrested with first-degree rendering criminal assistance for helping Apling.
